Additional components

Custom CureFest App

Participants will be interconnected virtually through an interactive, custom app that will count the group’s steps for the day. Based on the number of participants, we will have a group goal for steps taken on September 25 and 26. There will also be unique ways for families to share updates and words of encouragement with other families.

Video Tribute for fighters, survivors and angels

This year, families will have the opportunity to honor their children by submitting a photo. These images will be edited into a virtual tribute video that will be shared on social media on September 26 and beyond. 

CureFest LiveStream (tentative)

CureFest program with speakers and performers will be tentatively streamed on September 26, 2021 prior to the One Voice community walks.

CureFest Beads and Medals

Individuals will have the opportunity to purchase honor beads and medals for survivors, fighters, siblings, parents and advocates. 

In addition, the CureFest Team is working on other enhancements to this year's event. We will post details throughout the summer.
